Redskins 31, Ravens 28, OT

Win, RG3's status relief for Redskins

LANDOVER, Md. — Robert Griffin III wore a big black brace on his right knee. Teammates, though enjoying an overtime win over the Ravens, feared for their franchise player and rookie sensation.

But hours later, they breathed a sigh of relief after learning Griffin had a sprain, not a torn ACL.

Team spokesman Tony Wyllie said an MRI exam revealed "everything is clear" in terms of significant ligament damage for Griffin, who had a season-ending ACL tear at Baylor in 2009.

Griffin said on Twitter: "Your positive vibes and prayers worked people!!!! To God be the Glory!"

He went down during Washington's final drive of regulation. Fellow rookie Kirk Cousins stepped in and hit Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown with 29 seconds left, then ran for the tying 2-point conversion. Richard Crawford returned a punt 64 yards in OT to set up Kai Forbath's 34-yard winning field goal.
